This is a big-ish Zin in style especially for Sonoma. Purple in color, ruby at the rim. The nose is nice with black raspberries, black cherries and slight bramble. A bit of pepper, too. Full bodied. Good acidity. On the palate, there is nice black raspberry fruit with some cherries. Underlying spices. Pepper on the finish. It worked well with Thai food but will drink well on its own too. Drink over the next seven to ten years.
